campaign and mitt romney is up by two points. a gallup poll out today has romney at 49%, president obama 47%. that is within the poll's margin of error so it is still essentially a tie. the two campaigns tangled today over the definition of one of the shortest words in the english language. the question is whether vice president biden misled the american people in the debate last night and whether he had misused the word "we." biden was responding to charges that the state department turned down requests for more security in libya before the terror attack last month that killed the u.s. ambassador and three other americans. here's what the vice president said. >> well, we weren't told they wanted more security. we did not know they wanted more security again. and, by the way, at the time we were told exactly -- we said exactly what the intelligence community told us that they knew. that was the assessment. >> pelley: the fight today was over what he meant by "we." our campaign 2012 correspondents on r on the story and we'll go first to jan crawford who gotten a earful from the romney campai

question here. there's no question and the polls reflect that romney helped himself in his debate. you heard what frank luntz just said about that kind of instant poll that he ran. but are you seeing any polling yet that suggests that the vice presidential debate made any difference in the race, not on who won or lost? >> no, not really. i think we see, you know, this-- the race overall now in the national polls you see the average of them romney's up by a point or two. he was behind by three points or so before that denver debate. in the battleground states some have turned -- colorado, florida is looking better, ohio is a little tighter, the president is still up there. that's all because of denver. i don't think we've seen anything in this-- the debate field like it went into the automatic sorting machine of this election where we already had, the right took from it what they wanted the left took what they wanted, and the swing voters may have been a little offended by biden but they're not going to make their decision-- >> schieffer: i'm going to ring the bell for round two. >> bab
